thank god i didn't mention 'jump'...

I know I curse the dreaded suburbs. I sincerely hate the fact that I work in my yokle hometown and not the big, bustling city in which I currently live. I can't stand the constant barrage of designer dogs and nannies walking the little blond children far too slowly.
But I take it all back.
Because yesterday, while pumping gas, I made Sammy Hagar laugh.
And I realized, there is something way better about making a (has been) celebrity laugh than one of you regular people. Suddenly, my life was validated. The thrill is indescribable. I wanted to hop onstage and do my little tequilla act for everyone.
Instead, I sent a mass text alerting my peeps to my incredibly exciting news.
Here's a smattering of response:
Mikey: He was probably trying to get away from you.
Kelsey: Random.
Ben: Too bad it wasn't David Lee Roth.
Alex: I bet he thought you were crazy.
And finally, Zoe: Wha? Where? Was he driving "55"...

"Mill Valley has also been home to many musicians, authors, and actors. The writer Jack Kerouac and the poet Gary Snyder once shared a cabin above the 2 AM Club, and Jerry Garcia — who recorded music in a Mill Valley recording studio — also once called Mill Valley home. Other rock stars such as Huey Lewis, Jeff Watson, Bob Weir, Sammy Hagar, Bonnie Raitt, Pete Sears, and Janis Joplin have also called this small town home. Authors such as Wright Morris and Jack London have also lived here, as does Joyce Maynard. Actors Peter Coyote, Dana Carvey, Jill Eikenberry, Kathleen Quinlan, Michael Tucker, have also called Mill Valley home and it was the place of birth for actors Eve Arden and Mariel Hemingway."

And Beth Spotswood!!
